The British government has set travel advisory on Sri Lanka due to a number of challenges befallen the island nation, including the ongoing economic crisis.
In a report updated on March 07 and effective to date (13) the UK government stated that the economic situation is ‘deteriorating’ in Sri Lanka with shortages of basic necessities, including medicines, fuel and food because of hard currency to pay for imports.
There may be long queues at grocery stores, gas stations, and pharmacies and local authorities may impose the rationing of electricity, resulting in power outages, the report added.
“Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Sri Lanka, the report went on, “Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners. More than 250 people including tourists were killed in April 2019 in terrorist attacks that targeted churches and hotels.”
